China saw imports drop for the twelfth month in a row in October giving further cause for concern over the Chinese economy.

Imports by the world's biggest trader of goods fell 18.8% from a year earlier to $130.8 billion dollars, a slight improvement on September's 20.4% decline.

Exports dropped 6.9% to $192.4bn, the fourth consecutive monthly fall, as foreign demand waned.

That left China with its highest trade surplus on record at 61.6 billion dollars.
